The advise seems to be to head towards the area on day one, stopover and head to the canyon early the next morning whilst itís not as hot. Hopefully a little quieter as well. However, hotel prices are not cheap even for fairly moderate properties.

I am also looking to perhaps do it as a one way drive and then fly back to PHX from LAS. Cheaper to do one way car hire into LAS than one way out from LAS dropping off in PHX.
Until last month, I'd have said the best way to see the Grand Canyon is by helicopter. I did it in November, and it was really cool, but the company I used is now tied up in the headlines.
